The biggest enemies - Bette Davis vs. Joan Crawford

The most interesting details of a lifelong feud of two strong and talented women who never gave up.


The feud between Bette and Joan is well known and is considered one of the most famous conflicts in the history of Hollywood and a bright example of the struggle of opposites. Perfect beauty of Joan versus specific appearance of Bette. A punctual neatnik versus a diva. A movie star versus a brilliant actress. It was half a feud that never ended.

"For more than half a century these two hated each other...and we loved them for it," says the actress Olivia de Havilland performed by Catherine Zeta-Jones. She participated in the filming of the horror "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" (1962) and witnessed the furious opposition between the two divas. The feud looks very juicy and rich on screen and through Hollywood glamour you still can see all the strength of the characters.

There hasn’t been an actress in modern times we that could even strike a match to the flame of Ms Bette Davis. She was and always will be The Greatest Actress that ever lived.

Beautiful versus talented. If Crawford had been plain the two would never have met much less competed.

Their so called conflict was real, but abetted by the publicity machine which actually helped the careers of these 2 women. They would have been silly to "make up" and loose that.

Writer says Bette was ugly. When young, I thought she was very pretty.

They were professionals. However, Crawford was very meticulous in her acting. Both women were different, but even after the passing of Crawford, Davis hinted they were actually good friends.

Who writes this stuff? It’s so bad in places it actually makes no sense, and serves only to confuse! How is it that such crappy stuff is allowed on here?
